Thanks, alot

Allah (allat) before Islam. Religions are not about truth. Religions are about power. And to wield real power, they need pedestrians - foot soldiers. And, like most pedestrians throughout history, these foot soldiers must believe that they hold some solid truth. It might well be bullshit, but if they believe, then that bullshit becomes a truth in which they believe with all their (diminished) mind..
What the Abrahamic religions hold in common is that their followers are taught (actually brainwashed) to believe that they were given the absolute truth when, in fact, they have been turned into pawns in a power game of the laughing powerful elite. It is somewhat more complex than just a few elite folks running a secret cabal.
प्यादा (m.) Pers. pedestrian, foot soldier, or peon/messenger

No beginning, no end.

It seems that god (or the gods) did not say "let there be light" and there was a time before beginning. So what happened is the god(s) brought two hands together and when the membranes collided, this universe was created. Those membranes or "branes" are undulating x + y dimensional strings which are probably bubbles floating in space like soap bubbles in the air. Here is an intro.

screw the math, here are some soap bubbles:

The evolution of god(s)

is really the evolution of thought processes among tribal groupings throughout the world. Anything (e.g. lightening) that could not be rationally explained was irrationally explained by attributing it (lightening) to a god (Thor). There was a different lightening god (in name only) for different tribal groupings. Norse Thor was Greek Zeus was Roman Jupiter was Semitic YHVH or Allat - all a local thunder (or storm) god.

Now you might suspect that there was a different god for each irrationally explained phenomena. And you would be correct. In the Indian tradition, there are 3,003 gods. In Shinto, who even tries to keep count?

But there are certain symbols (e.g. the moon) and patterns (e.g. a day of judgment) that help cultural anthropologists deconstruct regional mythology.

Well, even among Buddhists, if you die with a heavy heart, you thereafter suffer.
